September 18, 2013 – Mariathon – The Simplest Things Make a Great Difference With Our Lord
// September 18th, 2013 // The Joy of Discovery
We know from Sacred Scripture that Our Lord requires very little from us to work great wonders. He depends on the openness of our hearts and not the size of our offering. Consider, for example, the small boy with the two fish and five loaves (John 6: 1-14). Impossibly, this meager portion fed 5,000 people with 12 baskets of food left over! We also can recall the widow who contributed two small, copper coins (Luke 21: 1-4) to the Temple treasury. Our Lord remarked how great this contribution was compared with all the other contributions, even those of greater amounts. In the same way, your contributions to Radio Maria, especially those made from your heart, are greatly multiplied by Our Lord. You can be part of Radio Maria’s ministry of evangelization as BL Pope John Paul II called for in 1987. Please join us with your contributions.
My special guest this evening is Sadie Fletcher, my mother. Sadie shares how the simplest encouragements in the faith made great differences in the lives of my brothers and sisters, and my own life. Your prayers and efforts are no less important than my mother’s and God will produce a great harvest through them.
